Basic Gnome Questions and Answers
What are Just Say Gnome! Garden Gnomes made of?
Well, most of the final Gnomes that we send out into the World are cast in a high strength cement - with a bit of sand mixed in too. Usually we also focus on infusing them with some universal Life spirit too and will usually chant 'OM' around them a bit to help harmonize their vibrations. However the original version of each of our Garden Gnomes is sculpted by our resident artist Steve Herrington from a mixture of materials. He begins with a bendable wire armature (approximate framework), then generally covers that with crumpled tin foil to build up the basic form of the gnome - and then the nearly final details of the Gnome are sculpted with Sculpey (TM) oven-bake clay - with a few final details added last - made with a form of sculpting epoxy.
